a special giveaway.

MOTHER’S DAY is coming Sunday May 10!

In honor of this very special holiday, I am going to be giving away a complimentary sunset session to be photographed in July or August 2015. This session can be used for yourself, your mom, your wife or gifted to a friend. It’s a small token of appreciation for all the wonderful, exhausting, messy, hard, funny work that I know being a mama entails.

There are three steps to enter this giveaway :

+ FOLLOW Penny Gray on instagram : pennygrayphoto
+ LIKE the Penny Gray facebook page : www.facebook.com/ThePennyGrayPhotographyCo
+ COMMENT on this post letting me know that you’ve completed the steps.

The winner will be chosen at random once all the entries have been collected and announced here (and via instagram and facebook) on Friday, May 8!

Fun mother’s day gift, right?! I’m looking forward to photographing a well deserving mama and her family… Good luck!

The sunny weather this weekend was the most delicious foretaste of spring! Can’t tell you how much I’ve missed shooting outside in the warm glow of afternoon sun… which reminded me of this session from the fall I hadn’t shared yet!

I’ve been photographing this sweet family since Audrey was pregnant with Isabel. This past summer they made the move from city life to the country, and when I saw pictures of their new place, I jumped at the opportunity to photograph them there! What an amazing home to raise their sweet little people…

My very favorite client emails to receive are those announcing a new baby is coming. It’s so amazing to document the journey of growing a family.

When Gabrielle emailed me last year saying they were expecting TWINS, I started counting down the days until I got to meet them! I first met Matt & Gabi in 2012, when they were expecting their first. To this day, it’s one of my favorite maternity shoots ever…

sweet sleepy baby Carter was the last client I photographed before I went on maternity leave back in august before the arrival of my own little guy. just like his brother, who I had the privilege to photograph two years before, he was a perfect model.  thank you for sharing your darling boys with me!
